Drug policy and the system of care and treatment in the Federal Republic of Germany.
Risks of drug abuse in a global context. Symposium. Berlin (DEU), 1992/09/15.
In this article the absurdity of the prevailing drug policy in the Federal Republic of Germany is shown.
The hithero existing system of care and treatment has been determined by the logic of criminalization; moreover, its range and effect was rather small.
Instead of at least making corrections to this ineffective and inhuman system, German drug policy continues despite some promising alternative approaches in some of the federal states according to the slogan « more of the same » and propagates the « war on drugs ».
The author, however, pleads for a « change of paradigm » in drug policy, in which the idea of acceptance, decriminalization, pluralization of offers as well as communication-orientated drug-prevention would play a prominent role.
